Wonka Vision Magazine was an American music magazine. It was founded in 1997 by Lane Chiasson and ceased publication in 2010.

History[edit]

While Luczejko was in high school he started Wonka Vision Magazine with two friends;[2] a 20-page zine that they copied at an OfficeMax.[1] The name comes from the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.[2]

In 2001 Wonka Vision also became a record label.[2]

Content[edit]

In a 2008 interview appearing in South Philly Review, Luczejko on Wonka Vision Magazine says "we do art, politics, anything that's sort of underground, on that edge.. ..it's not just rock, we do hip-hop-always have-I grew up listening to rap, indie rock, hardcore, we've done what we love."[3] The magazine featured interviews, album reviews, and pop culture articles.[2]
